Ono’s character is simply named “the protagonist as of the moment, as it still isn’t clear if the adaptation will be following the anime adaptation’s naming, Ren Amamiya, or the manga’s, which is Akira Kurusu. It might also be possible if they give him a new name entirely as well.

The play is scheduled to run in December. Its first run will be from December 13-15 at Osaka’s Hotel Mielparque Theater. They will then transfer to Tokyo’s The Galaxy Theater from December 19-29, 2019.
